|Even the third time around, I still love this pattern!|
Pattern: Citron by Hilary Smith Callis
Source: free from Knitty
Materials: The yarn is Schaefer Audrey in "Spruce". I really like how the ruched rows turned out in this beautiful 50% wool/50% silk yarn. I used US 3 circular needles to knit and US 5 to bind off.
Modifications: I knit this in a smaller gauge than called for in the pattern, so I added a 6th section to make it large enough. I also learned a great new stretchy bind off from YouTube here.
Even with an extra section, my version of Citron in a smaller gauge is more like a scarf or cowl:
I am halfway done with Steph's husband's hat so I'll save that for the next post. Even though I didn't quite finish in time to get both gifts in the mail this week, I was certainly motivated to knit more quickly by participating in FO Friday. Thanks Tami!
